Geertruida first emerged in our consciousness when a tape was co-released between them and the British label Faux Discx.
The tape was by a Dutch band called TV Wonder. This band were as poorly documented as they were appealing. It seemed they were a new band. It also seemed that Geertruida
and TV Wonder were somewhat made of the same people. The internet would not provide certainty. Meanwhile, we discovered that our friends in Häxxan had played a house
show at what was referred to as the 'Geertruida mansion' in Haarlem, Netherlands. Seemingly the same Geertruida.
For a while, it seemed that Geertruida was everywhere and nowhere. Like Fight Club.
Furthermore, it was a bit unclear to us exactly what Geertruida meant, else than being an old Dutch girls' name.
Meeting Marijn at a show in Copenhagen helped clear things up a bit. Besides being a kindred spirit, he turned out to be part of the secret Geertruida society. As it
turns out, Geertruida is both a label and a house. It's also a low key guitar shop. And a rehearsal space. And occasional venue and band hotel.
The mystery was still very apparent, but as it turns out, our next tour would feature a house show at the Geertruida mansion. This turned out to be the absolute
highlight of the tour and ultimately a further collaboration seemed inevitable. Thus, unfinished songs were finished and the s/t 7" was in the making.
